Default Gemini200 B747-400 British Airways G2BAW840F

Got this gem from DiecastAirplane.com

Gemini200
Boeing 747-400
Reg: G-BNLY
British Airways (Landor Color)
Item: G2BAW840F
Flaps Down Version

I rarely collect outside of House Color collection but this one I had to make an exception because it just looks so beautiful with the flaps down and

the classic Livery. It goes nicely with my Concorde that's also in the Landor colors. The Flaps down looks amazing on the stand like it's on Final

Approach, wish more models featured this. I also like the option where they provided 2 types of front Landing Gear (one compressed and one

uncompressed) so you can display it properly. Here's some pictures:

Cool Re: Gemini200 B747-400 British Airways G2BAW840F

Well... sadly they printed the passenger window line too high

Nevertheless I have it in my collection and beside their BOAC sister they both look very strange, as on the BOAC version they printed the passenger window line much too low

Now waiting for the last of the tripple and hoping for a perfect window line at least

PS: Beside this issue I really like these ones from GJ much more as the ones from IF200, which are much more worse regaring to their strange cockpit window design...
